Multi-Billionaire businessman, Arthur Eze has dismissed the controversy trailing the presidential pardon granted former governor of Bayelsa state, Dipreye Alamaseigha and others saying it was God that directed president Jonathan to grant the pardon.
Speaking with state House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Chief Eze said criticisms against the pardon was misplaced.
“What Jonathan did is what a man who fears God will do. If I have an opportunity as president of Nigeria I will do the same.
All of us are human beings. What he did was correct. We are not fighting war. Jonathan took advice from God. God has told him to show mercy. The bible says blessed are those that are merciful for they shall see God” he said.
He said the American government has no right to dictate to Nigeria because Nigeria is an independent nation.
Speaking on his donation of over N1billion to a church in the president’s Village, Chief Arthur Eze said those criticising him over the donation are criticising God.
“God gave me the money to contribute to the church. The money is not meant for Jonathan to put in his pocket. We are thinking of thanking God for what he has done for Otuoke. It was abandoned for many years.
They had no water, no electricity until when God brought Jonathan to change that place. Let the people have a place to worship God. Those criticizing me are confused people” he said.
